In layman’s language, a capital gain refers to as the profit earned from a sale of investment such as stocks, bonds, and shares or property. It is one of the five heads of income under the Income Tax Act 1961. Capital gain can be long-term, i.e., for a period of more than one year or short term, i.e., for a period of 1 year or less. All entities must pay income tax applicable on capital gains. When an asset like property is sold, or investment such as stocks is sold at a price higher than the purchase price, this triggers a taxable event. Unless the actual sale capital gains reflect the increase in the value of the asset or investment and are not taxable unless a taxable event is triggered.
